Full day Swan Valley – Up Close and Behind the Scenes
How is our Swan Valley tour different from others? Simple. It’s not a Swan Valley tour – it’s a wine tour. At 183 years old, this is the oldest wine region in Western Australia and steeped in history. And, as one of the warmest climate wine regions in Australia, allowing the fruit to reach it’s maximum ripeness – meaning you will get to taste spectacular fortifieds, beautifully crisp sparkling wines and of course amazing full-bodied reds!
On this tour, it’s not just about tasting (although there is plenty of that!). We take you behind the scenes into the winery and vineyard, to get an insight into wine production, the unique terroir of this region and meet the winemakers.This experience is unique to each tour depending on what stage in the vintage it is and what is happening in the winery on the day. You may get to see picking, crushing, blending or even experience a barrel tasting – you just never know what the winemaker will have in store for us!
This is the ultimate wine tour for people that really want to experience the best Swan Valley wineries. We visit 4 to 5 boutique wine producers, and the wineries we visit can change daily to ensure that you get the best possible experience on each day, and at each winery. The wineries we visit are all family owned, and are hand-picked by us for their quality and history, and our guaranteed small groups mean we have access to wineries that won’t accommodate the big tour buses so you get away from the regular beaten path.
All tastings are included in your tour, including reserve and award winning wines, and you will have the chance to sample well over 50 wines – if you are up to the challenge – everything from a Verdelho to a Durif to a Muscat. Most of the wines you will try are produced small batch, so the only place you can find them is at the cellar door. The day is set at a relaxed pace so that we have plenty of time for questions and discussion.
While we may be serious about our wine, you can rest assured this is definitely a fun day out where you can share your experience with like-minded people, discover some hidden gems and learn a few things along the way. You don’t need an expansive wine knowledge to do a wine tour, you just need to have an open mind and an appreciation for the talent and hard work that goes into crafting every vintage. Leave the rest to us.
Our tours are guaranteed to be a maximum of 12 people, so that you get a personal and memorable experience.
